Collaboration between different disciplines in your organization can be difficult, and finding clarity and alignment on both the right problem to solve and the right solution design even more so. We each approach improvement from our own (limited) perspective, without taking into account the whole story. How is that effective?
EventStorming is a workshop format that promotes collaboration between different disciplines in order to solve business problems in the most effective way.
In this highly hands-on and interactive virtual workshop you'll learn advanced EventStorming facilitation skills spanning from large scale business discovery to collaborative solution design at the team level.
Learn how to facilitate the different EventStorming formats applied to real business problems, taking into account the different perspectives (including the facilitator). Practice applying EventStorming to various problems, reflecting on your learning and questions as we go deeper into the techniques.
Learn tips and tricks for effective facilitation of collaborative workshops in both in-person and virtual settings, and practice planning an EventStorming session for your own context.
"We really enjoyed the EventStorming workshop! Paul’s facilitation style and methodology made the exercise easy to understand, and participation and collaboration came with ease. He’s very good at tactfully encouraging differing opinions through thoughtful discussion. The workshop was a huge success with a highly valuable end result!"
This workshop is highly hands-on, varied, and interactive. We will be doing group exercises in Zoom breakout rooms. By spreading the training into shorter interactive virtual sessions, we minimize the impact to your daily work and keep your energy levels high.
Virtual learning can be intense, so there will be scheduled breaks every hour. Plus, if your kids interrupt, dogs bark, or you need to step away for a bit, that's just part of the experience and perfectly fine with us. Our goal is for you to leave the workshop energized and ready to put into practice what you've learned. In attending this virtual workshop you agree to:
Anybody who works in software teams or with software teams will be able to fully participate in this workshop and take away concrete skills they can apply in real working situations. This includes software developers, architects, testers, product owners, business analysts, delivery managers, engineering managers, directors, and CTOs.
"Our EventStorming session with Paul was a huge success. He’s very adept at guiding and informing the process while allowing participants to storm, discuss and ultimately reach their own conclusions. We emerged from the session with a much better understanding and greater agreement around our domains."
